Michael Matheny, MD, MPH
Associate Professor of Biomedical Informatics
Michael E. Matheny, MD, MS, MPH, is a practicing general internist and medical informatician, Associate Director of the TVHS VA Biomedical Informatics Fellowship, and Associate Professor of Bioinformatics, Medicine, and Biostatistics at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He recently completed a five-year VA HSR&D Career Development Award, and is currently supported by grant and contract funding from VA HSR&D, NHLBI, PCORI, and Astra Zeneca. He has expertise in developing and adapting methods for post-marketing medical device surveillance, and has been involved in the development, evaluation, and validation of automated outcome surveillance statistical methods and computer applications. He is leading the OMOP extract, transform, and load team within VINCI for the national VHA data, and is multiple PI for the pScanner CDRN led by Lucila Ohno-Machado. He is currently developing analytic tools using the OMOP CDM, and his other areas of research include natural language processing and health services research in acute kidney injury, diabetes, and device safety in interventional cardiology.
